What We Do

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of 1.5 million volunteers dedicated to saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the fight for a world without cancer. From breakthrough research, to free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and convening powerful activists to create awareness and impact, the Society is the only organization attacking cancer from every angle.

- We continue to provide information, support and guidance to patients and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via our free help line, 1-800-227-2345, and our website, cancer.org. Our local offices are closed to the public at this time.
- ACS CAN continues to advocate for access to critical health care at the federal, state, and local levels – an urgent need in the face of this pandemic.
- Relay For Life events have been moved to a virtual set up or postponed until after June, please contact your local staff partner for updates & opportunities.
- Hope Lodge is not currently open to the public due to COVID-19.
